A popular TV chef will be on the menu during a special charity evening this month

Following a stint at the Michelin-starred Midsummer House in Cambridge, Dean worked on various television programmes, including Take on the Takeaway and This Morning. He is currently the resident chef on ITV’s Lorraine and makes regular appearances on Saturday Cookbook.

The event on Saturday, April 22, is in aid St Catherine’s Hospice – and will be followed the following day by a celebrity charity football match in aid of the hospice at Bamber Bridge FC. A team of ex-pro legends will go head-to-head with TV celebrities, including actors from popular teen soap Hollyoaks. Tickets for the St Chad’s night are £10 each, which includes a hot pot supper. There will also be a raffle and auction.

They are available from St Chad’s Club, Copthurst Lane, Whittle-le-Woods, or Gobins Family Butcher on Chorley Market. Or you can call Sue on 07506131267.

Tony Cartwright has organised the event with his daughter Steph.

The family’s fund raising for St Catherine’s follows the death of Tony’s sister Tracey Brown.

Tracey, who was born and bred in Chorley - she lived on Copthurst Lane, Whittle-le-Woods and attended Parklands High School - died, aged 47, in St Margaret’s Hospice, Taunton some years ago. It was her dying wish that others like her receive dedicated hospice care.

Tony, of Wheelton, said: “Both the Beatles night and the charity football match are sure to be two really entertaining events, and they’re raising money for such a great cause.

“Get along and enjoy them and support St Catherine’s at the same time.”
